Photo: @coryrichards 50 yrs ago today, an @natgeo sponsored expedition to Mt. Everest put the first American on the summit. Today, over 5000 people have climbed the mountain. However, despite all the hype, drama, and mess, it remains a truly sacred place, special beyond words. 50 yrs of our own national heritage aside, it still has the power to inspire. I believe it always will. This image was taken from camp 1 on Pumori when I was there with natgeo explorer @conradclimber. @thephotosociety @thenorthface
